I know this is a website for Fairfax County, but you would think that DC would come up in conversation more, at least tangentially. I never hear anyone talk about going to private schools in DC (a lot of Fairfax County kids in them btw, hanging out in the city or going to events there. I'm just curious if the people here spend a lot of time in the city. PEACE OUT

DC is like a third world country. No wait, that's not fair to third world countries.

It's a shithole run by the most incompetent and corrupt people on earth.

Case in point: a few years ago a guy from Stafford was struck by lightning and killed. It took his family like a month to get his body from those bastards, so they could bury him.

There's good bars in VA, why risk your life with those animals across the river?

Shooting 'heron' is overrated. You might as well 'speedball' if you really want to go hard.

I love DC. However one should heed the ealier comments and stay away from the bad parts which do seem to multiply after dark. That said, it was hard to get used to but now I love it. It's close, no tolls, NY is $12 for the bridges and that doesn't include the Turnpike. Great restaurants. AND most of the museums are FREE.

DC is filled with nothing but long-term welfare moms and deviant degenerates that have sex in public restrooms.

Ahmed, we are now watching you due to suspicions that you may commit terrorist acts in DC. Prepare to have your home computer seized.

LOL I once ran a red light in DC with a cop right behind me. No joke, he pulled next to me and said never do that again. Haha, if this was ffx, they would've called in the hello.

yeah i have heard dc cops are much more chill than ffx cops. Its probably because they know there are much more serious crimes that they should focus their attention on rather than grillin people for minor offenses.

You got a point there about the cops.

I've noticed that in places with mega rates of serious, deadly crime...that the cops don't sweat the small stuff.

I got pulled over in D.C. driving drunk as fuck on suspended with a baggie of over 20 e pills in it. DC's finest rolled up on me with guns drawn (too much movement in the car), but in the end, they just made me stomp the pills into the ground and ended up letting me drive off. True story...honest.

Years ago on 4th of July, me and some friends walked into downtown and bought a 12 pack before the fireworks started. We were already drunk, and like dumbasses, we immediately cracked open some beers for the walk back down to the White House area. Sure enough, a DC cop saw us drinking in public. All he said was that it was illegal to drink on the streets, and we could either pour them out, or go stand over in Lafayette Park (federal property) and he'd leave us alone. I thought that was pretty cool, because I'm sure a FFX cop would of just started writing tickets for open containers and drunk in public.

Not sweating the small stuff may very well be how the big stuff got started. The "broken window theory" seems to support this. If people know they are going to be held accountable for their actions for "minor" crimes, they will more than likely be less inclined to commit larger crimes.

The fact is that the DC police used to be a pretty good agency until the corrupt Barry years in the 80's. Most of their "police officers" in DC would never get a second interview at a law enforcement agency in Virginia.

Yeah, that's a great theory...but in practice, I think urban police depts just flat don't have the time to get all worked up over stuff that FCPD (thankfully) DOES have the time for.

a lot of it has to do with jail overcrowding I bet. if they incarcerated everyone who got caught committing a misdemeanor in dc everyday, the jail would overflow.

the reason you don't see much about what's going on in DC on here...

DC has stuff Fairfax doesn't offer. Free Museums, free plays, and free attractions. Every weekend I take my kids into DC, last weekend we went up the clocktower at the Old Post Office, saw a music show at the National Theatre, and The Lincoln Days program at the National Archives.

This Sunday I am taking them to the revamped Ford's Theater.
